Anishinabequay, Cote First Nation
My colonized name is Georgina Crate. However, I am Wabinoquay (Morning Star Women), I am of the Bear Clan, I am Anishinabequay, from Cote First nation in Treaty Four Territory. I am a grandmother, been living on our sacred mother earth for 65 years. And I work for our most beautiful, kind loving Creator, by caring the teachings, protecting our sacred land and water.
I have always had a dream of making beautiful things and selling them, so you can say I am living a dream. I taught myself how to sew, design and make jewelry. I did have help with the sewing from my dear sweet friend Rosalie Kinistino, she encouraged me showed me how, telling me I was good and I could make anything I put my mind too! I spent many years working in Indigenous child and family services, working for Indigenous peoples is where my heart is.
